I believe in the capacities of all students to understand and formulate powerful ideas and to offer unique insight. To access these capacities, I meet students where they are and cultivate habits of critical inquiry and skills of expression. I take an open-minded attitude to canon formation and disciplinary boundaries. Finally, I believe that pedagogy must be thought about together with structural issues of justice in education.
